Fredericksburg, Texas Day Trip

February 28, 2010 at 8:47 pm 1 comment

Some plans changed this weekend and freed up some time for us on Saturday. After reading this post by a shop owner whose store I’ve been meaning to pay a visit to I made a rash decision to make a day trip to Fredericksburg for the day. This quaint hill country town (southwest of Austin) is known for its peaches, pecans, vineyards, German influences, and charming main street.

It was a perfectly sunny day that got up into the high 60s and gave us a hint of how sweet spring will be. While there we ate Weiner Schnitzel and Goulash, window shopped up and down main street, and gazed at architecture from days past.

Of course we stopped in Enid on Main Street so I could see what all the fuss was about. I’ve seen products from this store on various design blogs for awhile now, the owner’s aesthetic is right up my alley. I walked away with a turquoise bud vase to help dull my ever present obsession with mini vases and cute ceramics. We were also lucky enough to meet and speak with owner Lara Collins Bobo about her shop and Fredericksburg in general.

On the way to and from town we saw dozens of empty peach stands awaiting the summer months to ripen the fruit that doesn’t exist yet :-) We plan on going around late June or early July and vow to find some incredible peach cobbler!
